Manitoba Municipal Records
|Manitoba Research Topics|
|Local Research Resources|
Original and microfilmed copies of municipal records are being gathered by the Provincial Archives at http://www.gov.mb.ca/chc/archives/. These records should be searched first before approaching the local municipal offices, though the majority of the records still remain within the custody of the local offices. The minutes of the Council of Assiniboin, 1832–1869, are located in several different archives in Manitoba. Records for the city of Winnipeg are held at the City of Winnipeg Archives.
The tax records and assessment rolls are the municipal records of greatest genealogical value. They may contain information on the family members and an indication of the financial position of the family.
